I took Ash by Malinda Lo with me on a trip to Germany in October. Malinda has this unbelievable talent for detail and atmospheric setting. She captures the very essence of the world she created. Turned out to be a good choice. The atmosphere, setting, and style of this book all felt very German to me. It's a retelling of the Cinderella story except that Ash's love interests are a male fairy of the dark and tortured variety (you know a real underhill fairy) and a female huntress of pagan rights old world inclination ~ the prince is mere side character. I just felt like I was there.
Ash feels pulled between two worlds - the fairy realm, where a haughty prince named Sidhean waits for permission to possess her, and the charmed hours she spends with Kaisa. This debut, a retelling of Cinderella in which the heroine falls in love with a beautiful huntress rather than a prince, should establish Lo as a gifted storyteller. Lo's prose is beautiful, her descriptions lush.

We talk a lot about writing and adapting fairy tales, but also about crushes, astrology, and whether or not the fairy godmother represents death?
